We meet thousands of installers face to face in free training classes every year all over the world.” Easy to access online training program He adds, “Launching easy to access online training for our US customers is so important to us right now. Providing more options for installers to complete Paxton training feeds into our company value of simplicity, thereby enabling people to learn wherever they are and fit training into their schedule.” Steven further stated, “While our in-person training program will continue to expand, providing an option for those unable to attend makes perfect sense. Paxton online training means installers and integrators will benefit from our 30-plus years of industry experience from wherever they are, whenever they choose.” Building knowledge of Paxton systems Paxton’s training team has ensured the online courses are interactive and engaging Paxton’s training team has ensured the online courses are interactive and engaging and include how-to videos, clear and concise text and interactive exercises. Designed with Paxton’s core value of simplicity in mind, the online training will test and build confidence and knowledge of Paxton systems. Eileen Reed, U.S. Field Training Manager at Paxton stated, “Online training is a benefit to installers for a couple of reasons. First, an installer might have previously attended a Net2 training class and needs a refresher.” Eileen adds, “Our online training gives them the opportunity to immediately get the information they need, especially when they have a project in progress. Also, everyone learns differently. Some people prefer to learn at their own pace and rewind and review information to retain it. Our online training provides that.” Paxton access control and door entry product lines The online training modules are arranged by product. They cover Paxton’s access control and door entry product lines giving installers the flexibility to learn at their own pace. Initial modules are: Net2 plus - Everything required to know in order to get up and running with Net2 installation Net2 software - Going deeper into the configuration and day-to-day management of Net2 system Entry for Net2 – An introduction to using Paxton’s video intercom solution alongside Net2 access control Installers’ training modules Steve added, “For our installers, especially in areas where we don’t currently offer training, this online tool will be really convenient. I believe it will be another excellent way for us to support our installers. We know that nine out of ten installers, who start training with us, continue to install Paxton products on a regular basis.” He further stated, “This validates our belief that trained installers are confident in installing Paxton products and will choose them again and again for their customers. We can also be confident that our products are being installed to high standards, which is a key element to any end-user’s experience.” *Paxton is offering new registrations a free 30-day license if they sign up by June 1, 2020. The 30 days will run from the day they are registered, after which a 12-month license is available to purchase.
John Coursey joined the access control and video intercom company in May, having previously worked in the technology industry, training users of smart devices and wireless products. He will be providing practical, hands-on training for Paxton’sNet2 system at distributor locations and dealers' premises. He said, “In the move from smart devices to the security industry, I chose Paxton because of the world-class team I’d be joining. The array of user-friendly and aesthetically appealing products, plus the company’s devotion to creating a positive culture and work environment, made it top of my list.” Increasing demand for dealer training John’s appointment comes at a time of increasing demand for Paxton’s dealer training - 2018 was a record year globally, which saw over 3,000 dealers trained in the United States alone. Already this year, over 1,500 dealers have gone through free Net2 installation workshops – good news for dealers who boost their knowledge of the products, and for Paxton, who know that 9 out of 10 trained dealers go on to regularly install Paxton products for their clients. Eileen Reed, US Field Training Manager commented, “We’re excited to have John join our team. He’ll be working closely with our dealers on the West coast by providing them with the training they need to offer their customers with the best solutions.”
